A peaceful riverside town on the Pacific Highway, Macksville offers attractive ‘Lilypond’ parkland at the southern entrance to the town for travellers to rest and relax, walk around the lake or admire the wonderful birdlife.. Rich in history; the wide river provides many recreational opportunities –sailing, canoeing, jet ski and waterskiing, fishing and rowing. A visit to Mary Boulton’s Pioneer Cottage, a replica of a settler's home is worth a stop on your journey to Macksville. Macksville was named after the McKays and the McNallys, local families who along with MacGuiness, the parish priest, sub-divided their land and sold allotments. For many years, Macksville was a seaport for steamers transporting cedar and dairy produce along the coast.
